Professor Graeme Jackson has been awarded the 53rd Lombroso Lecturer Award by the American Epilepsy Society at the 2020 American Epilepsy Society event on Intrinsic Brain Networks and Epilepsy: The Next Era of Advanced MR Imaging.
This annual award is presented to a clinician or scientist who is considered an outstanding investigator in the field of epilepsy research internationally.
Professor Jackson’s career in research has spanned over 30 years and his world leading research in the field of brain imaging and epilepsy has been cited over 23,000 times (google scholar). As a researcher and a clinician, he is dedicated to ‘closing the translational gap’. Using research innovations in MRI technology to further understand brain structure and function and translating these insights into the treatment of people living with epilepsy, is a key aim of the proposed Australian Epilepsy Project.
“The Lombroso Lecture highlights significant current research in epilepsy and to become an alumnus of this most prestigious lecture is humbling. I feel very honoured as it reflects the impact of my work. Like all awards, it is also a credit to my team at the Florey Institute and my many collaborators and co-investigators over the years.”
Congratulations Professor Jackson.
